Cheesy Bacon Dip
Really good on pita chips!


1 lb. bacon - crumbled
1 pkg. cream cheese - softened
12 oz. sour cream (just don't use the whole 16
oz. container)
1 1/2 tsp. worcestershire (had to go and check
the bottle to spell
that!)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I think extra
sharp tastes best but you
have    
to shred it yourself)

I made mine in my mini crock pot - if you have
one then just melt the
cheese in there first (can take almost an hour)
then add the rest of the
ingredients, mix well and let it go for about 2
hours until it gets nice
and hot.

If you're not using a crock pot then you can just
mix all ingredients
together and bake at 350 for one hour.

Warm Tortellini and Cherry Tomato Salad from Cooking Light Magazine
Extravirgin olive oil and two kinds of vinegar make an easy, classic dressing for this pasta-and-vegetable salad. You can also try this with chicken or mushroom tortellini or cheese ravioli.

2  (9-ounce) packages fresh cheese tortellini
1 1/2  cups (1 1/2-inch-long) slices fresh asparagus (about 1 pound)
3  tablespoons red wine vinegar
1  tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1  tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1/4  teaspoon black pepper
4  cups trimmed arugula
1 1/2  cups halved cherry tomatoes
3/4  cup (3 ounces) pregrated fresh Parmesan cheese
1/2  cup thinly sliced red onion
1/3  cup thinly sliced fresh basil
1  (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Add asparagus to pasta during last 2 minutes of cook time. Drain.
While pasta cooks, combine vinegars, oil, and pepper in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add pasta mixture, arugula, and remaining ingredients; toss to coat.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

Chili Recipe

5lb ground beef, the leaner the better cause this will not be drained.
4-16oz cans kidney beans
4-16oz cans DICED tomato
2 medium onions, chopped
3 green peppers, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
chili powder ( I don't have an amount... I add it to
the ground beef as I am browning it so it adds more
flavor to the meat. Add as much as you want... I promise,
there can never be too much. wink.gif  )

Brown ground beef while adding chili powder
to it. DO NOT DRAIN!!!

Put ground beef, kidney beans, and diced tomato
in large pot and put on low.

Sautee onion, pepper, and garlic then add to the large pot.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Let this all simmer together for at least 2 1/2 hours before
serving for the BEST flavor, or you can put in a crock pot on
low and leave it for the party.

This will serve a PAGSCON!!! new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Sorry if I took TOO LONG getting this up. I am terrible at
remembering things. sad.gif

ENJOY!!!

Sure. Lots BUT what kind of cupcakes? Chocolate, vanilla, etc. Do you want homemade icing recipes too? Any particular flavor?  Nothing beats homemade cakes/cupcakes.

Vanilla and Chocolate would be great. And YES I need a good icing recipe. I'm a huge fan of whipped icing on cakes, can that be done on cupcakes?

Cakes from scratch kind of require a  lot of work IMO. I’ve made this recipe and was happy with the result but generally I use box cake and make the frosting myself. Anyway… here you go baxtrice! (I don’t have a good chocolate cake recipe but here is a white vanilla cake recipe.)

WHITE CAKE
Have all ingredients at room temperature.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Sift together twice:
3 ½ cups cake flour
1 Tbl plus 1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Combine:
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp almond extract (or more vanilla)

In a large bowl, beat until creamy:
½ lb (2 sticks) unsalted butter

Gradually add and beat on high speed until lightened in color and texture, 3 to 5 minutes:
1 2/3 cups sugar

Add the flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the milk mixture in 2 parts, beating on low speed until smooth, scraping sides of bowl as necessary. In another large bowl, beat on medium speed until soft peaks form:
8 large egg whites
3/8 tsp cream of tartar

Gradually add, beating on high speed:
1/3 cup sugar

Beat until the peaks are stiff but not dry. Use a rubber spatula to fold ¼ of the egg whites into the butter mixture, then fold in the remaining whites.

Put batter in lined cupcake tins and bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Sorry, I don’t have exact time. For cakes, it says to bake 25 minutes. I would watch the cupcakes carefully though.)

QUOTE
And YES I need a good icing recipe. I'm a huge fan of whipped icing on cakes, can that be done on cupcakes?

“Whipped” as in super light and fluffy? Here is my friend’s recipe for a whipped topping. She made this for her son’s bday cake and I loved it! HAD to have the recipe. It was incredibly light and fluffy.

ICING
1 cup milk
1 (3 ½ oz) pkg instant pudding mix, whatever flavor you want
¼ cup powdered sugar
8 oz Cool Whip

Pour milk into bowl, add pudding mix and sugar. Beat with whisk for 2 minutes. Gently fold in whipped topping until the pudding streaks disappear.


If you want other icing recipes, give me a holler.
